"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click OK to terminate the application.

Make sure your version of AVG is compatible with Vista -- if in doubt remove it and download/install latest version from their website. Even if you're sure it's compatible, very often an uninstall/re-install will fix those initialisation problems.

And don't panic -- AVG is not the only free antivirus application, though it is perhaps the best of the bunch.
